SOURCE: I just setup Nettalk Duo and can send and receive

I am a bit late to join the conversation, but good to know that you are using Nettalk Duo. It is economic and eco-friendly as you need not keep your PC on while using it. This voip dongle can be inserted right into the modem or the router.

Hi my hp 640 will not answer a fax call, but will answer only if we pick up the hand set.


Issue When the all-in-one product is sharing a phone line with voice calls, some calls are interrupted by fax tones. Follow the steps below to solve the problem.Step one: Check the Rings to Answer setting If Auto Answer is enabled, the HP fax product will answer the phone line when the number of rings reaches the number of rings specified in the Rings-to-Answer setting. When voice calls will be received on the same phone line as faxes, set to rings-to-answer to 6. If you do not want the fax to answer automatically, either turn off Auto Answer from the front panel and receive faxes manually (this may result in lost faxes) or subscribe to a distinctive ring service from the phone company (if available). Refer to the Answering faxes manually section below to learn how to answer faxes manually or refer to the Using distinctive ringing section below for more information about using distinctive ringing. The Rings-to-answer setting for the HP Officejet 500 and 600 series products can only be checked or set using the all-in-one software on the computer. The Rings-to-answer setting for the HP Officejet 500 and 600 series products can only be checked or set using the all-in-one software on the computer. Follow the steps below to check or change the setting for all models except the HP Officejet 500 and 600 series:
  1. Depending on the model, press either Menu , Setup , or Fax Setup repeatedly until Basic Fax Setup appears in the display.
  2. Press Enter (or Start or OK ).
  3. Press the right arrow button repeatedly until Rings to Answer is displayed, and then press Enter .
  4. The number of rings before the HP fax product answers will be displayed.
    • The setting is correct if it is 6. Press Cancel or Stop (Stop Fax) to exit the menu.
    • If the number is not 6, press the right arrow button until 6 appears in the display and then press Enter (or Start or OK ).

Even though my answering machine indicates it is on, noone can leave a message.The response is that the mailbox has not been set up.Can you help? Thank you.I have had this system for quite a while and have...


A "mailbox not set up" message is coming from your telephone line voice mail system, and not from your telephone answeringmachine. What this means is that the voice mail on the phone line is picking up before the answering machine has a chance, and since the mailbox hasn't been set up it can't take any messages. So there are two things you'll need to do.

First, you'll need to set up your voice mail. You may need to contact your telephone service provider for setup instructions since not all systems are the same, but here's how it usually works. From your home phone, call your own number so you reach your voice mail. You should get the message that your mailbox hasn't been set up, and will be prompted for an access code to get to the setup menu. The access code is usually the last four digits of your phone number, and you'll be prompted to change it to something else as part of the setup. Through the setup main menu you can record your greeting and set up other options like the ring count before the voice mail answers. Set it for a number larger than the setting on your telephone answering machine. (I have my answering machine set to 4 rings, and voicemail set to 6.)

Step two is to verify the ring setting on your answering machine. Four rings is a common default setting, but it's adjustable on the phone. Most newer phones have menus that you access from the handset to set change settings, while older models have a switch on the base unit.

Once the mailbox is set up and you have your answering machine set to pick up first, everything will work as you want.

How to set the tax


First, to make sure it will work, your fax machine should be going directly to the phone jack, with the answering mach/phone (if any) going to the ext port in the back of the fax machine. That way, the fax machine can "eavesdrop" for any fax tones for every call. If you want to use the fax machine to work with an answering machine on the same line, make sure to set the answering machine to 2 rings lower than the fax machine. Let's say, you have the answering machine set to 4 rings, your fax machine then should have 6 rings. You can set the number of rings for your fax machine under "basic fax setup" of the "menu". Otherwise, you can set the fax machine to auto answer by pressing the auto answer button.

How do I set the number of rings before the machine kicks in? I have model number 1710 AT&T.


There should be a setup button.My machine looks to be the same,just an older model.When you press the setup button,it will tell you the current setting.Press memo/repeat or annc/skip to change higher or lower numbers.After you have the setting you want,press the setup button until it exits the system and it will repeat the settings you have selected.Mine also has instructions molded on the back,but nothing for setting # rings.Good luck,Greg

Changing the number of rings to answer on our Model 28112 GE Cordless phone


the voicemail ring count has to be setup on your phone line thru your voicemail menu,and has nothing to do with the answering machine. if you don't want the answering machine to pickup, just shut it off. follow the prompt's for your voicemail settings, there you'll be able to set the amount of rings you want.
hope this helps.
